这两天继续为大家预测作文。昨天为大家预测了“在线教育 VS 传统教育”的作文题。错过的同学点这里回顾：
As COVID-19 spreads around the globe and the threat of a recession materializes, most people are focused properly on the immediate task at hand—preparing to teach and support students remotely.
The traditional system of learning—classroom education; has always been considered as the most appropriate method of receiving an education by everyone for centuries. However, in recent times as the world becomes more technologically advanced; it can be noticed that the classroom environment is slowly changing and paving way for online education.
Similarly, for eons humans learned “live” – listening to and working with teachers and mentors. Then, late in the 20th century, another learning possibility emerged, namely distance learning through the Internet. The technology steadily improved and now a large percentage of college students take at least one course online.
Technological change has made online coursework very competitive with the traditional means of teaching. Will it lead to dramatic change in college, or have only a minor impact?
The fact that online college courses have continued growing in popularity has led to a raging debate: Will this fundamentally transform higher education?
COVID-19 will also exacerbate weaknesses in higher education business models, particularly in colleges and universities that are highly dependent on international students and haven’t created an adequate online strategy.
This moment could also herald a shift in how high school juniors and seniors view online learning options.
Online programs are less expensive when compared to a traditional setting.
E-learning tools provide educators and students with access to resources they couldn’t have had otherwise, no matter their status or location. A medical student in China can learn from the top professor a continent away, and can do so in their own time while balancing a full-time job and a family at home.
There are also some demerits attributed to online education, such as online distractions, lack of self discipline, little or no face-to-face interaction and examination malpractice.
Building relationships with instructor and classmates will require more effort in an online environment.
Traditional environments encourage important social skills.
Even though e-learning has become an education equalizer, it’s still not a replacement for the traditional classroom. Sure, the technology is advancing, but it’s not flawless. Just like any new, burgeoning innovation, e-learning faces its own challenges.
Students naturally learn from one another while solving problems and working collaboratively in a traditional classroom. They’re validated and encouraged by face-to-face time with a teacher that doesn’t come from a pre-recorded video. E-learning has yet to find a way to truly imitate that.
What exactly will happen is hard to divine.
Online courses are trending but they cannot fully replace teachers and schools.
Experts suggests that a hybrid model will emerge. The demand for the kind of quality educational experience will never vanish. I suspect, however, that the proportion of college education that occurs that way will shrink dramatically in the years ahead, while the proportion that occurs online will keep growing.
But far-sighted leaders will do more and keep investments in programs that support education delivery systems that are better able to withstand a variety of crisis scenarios, from pandemics to natural disasters, from economic downturns to teacher walkouts.
How that plays out in the months ahead—and who seizes the opportunities at the intersections of these learning sectors—bears watching.
This, to me, is where e-learning and the traditional classroom will one day form a union: compensating for one where the other lacks.
今天就这样啦~ 希望大家最后阶段充分准备作文，到考场上多多拿分~ 我们明天见~
